The Corporeal Texture Conference is a graduate student-led conference that will take place on March 1st at the University of Cincinnati. The conference focuses on how viewers interact with a work of art on a sensory or bodily level. The speakers at this conference will discuss the various ways textures and surfaces play in how we view or experience art.
